Mood at the interface
by Josep Quer

Mood at the interface offers a unified study of the grammatical 
contribution of mood in the whole spectrum of subordination. The basic
hypothesis of the work is that indicative/subjunctive alternations
constitute the overt marking of a shift in the model where a prop-
osition is evaluated. It is shown that such an account in terms of
mood shift succeeds in providing a wide empirical coverage for this
rather murky domain and supplies a strong argument for the interac-
tion of this verbal category with the different components of the
grammar. The study concentrates on Romance languages, with special
emphasis on Catalan and Spanish.

Contents: 1. Subjunctive a dependent mood 2. Subjunctive types and
argument clauses 3. Mood and the interpretation of relative clauses 
4. Free relatives and free choice readings 5. Adjuncts as restrictors:
Mood shifts in concessives and concessive conditionals 6. Concluding
